Do you like it when older and potentially interesting threads are replied too, bumping their position in the forum?
Is this preferable to a new thread on the topic?
Is it better not to re-discuss old issues at all?
I know some 'veteran' members can get bored when they see the same topics being re-discussed ad nauseum. On some forums, bumping old threads is often considered a taboo.
In my opinion, forums can stagnate if older topics are not re-discussed, since it is these discussions that stimulates new members to join and potentially bring start new and novel topics of discussion.
How different should ones idea of a particular topic be to warrant a new discussion, versus taking an existing discussion on a new tangent?
